from Reynolds—part one of Claims of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Dear X,



A man keeps bumping into the same woman—over a three month period—in different locations. The man and the woman exchange hellos and how-are-you’s. They smile and become silent. The man, nervous to continue talking, and avoiding the silence, wonders if he should say: “we meet so often, under such strange circumstances, maybe we should begin having sex.” He doesn’t say anything, though, and then she and he say goodbye.
